Paul Nuttall in Hartlepool – #GE17

The UK Independence Party leader Paul Nuttall visited Hartlepool today following his announcement that he would run as the candidate for the Boston and Skegness constituency in the General Election. Britain is to go to the polls on June 8, 2017 after British Prime Minister Theresa May called for a snap general election.

Before his arrival arguments and a brawl broke out on the street outside a pub where UKIP supporters were gathering ahead of the visit and were heckled by a small group of pro-europe supporters. During the confrontation a female supporter from each of the opposing sides ended up brawling on the pavement and were subsequently taken away by police.

Mr Nuttall then did interviews and a short walkabout for media photo opportunities before heading down to the Boston area.

Grassroots – Stockton

The Deputy Leader of the Labour Party and Shadow Deputy Prime Minister, Harriet Harman arrived in Stockton-on-Tees today to join the Labour Parliamentary candidate for Stockton South, Louise Baldock as they went for a wander around the High Street to try and gain support from shoppers.

The visit came as part of Labour’s campaign ahead of the General Election on May 7 which is predicted to be Britain’s closest national election. After the walkabout they jumped aboard the ‘Pink Bus’ and headed to Grangefield Youth and Community Centre to meet women voters to chat about the issues that they were concerned about ahead of the election.

On assignment for Getty Images I spent the day photographing the visit…

Grassroots – Redcar (II)

As the days between now and the General Election in May gradually slip away the pre-election machines are starting to increase their activities in the marginal areas where a guaranteed victory in the polls might not be as forthcoming as in some other areas. Redcar on Teesside is one of these seats and after a couple of recent visits to the area by Labour MP’s it was time for the party leader Ed Miliband to come to town.

During the visit to Redcar and Cleveland College he addressed members of the public in a People’s Question Time event where following a short introductory speech by the Labour Party candidate for Redcar and Cleveland Anna Turley, he took part in a question and answer session before sitting and chatting with a few of the attending visitors.

 

I was on assignment for Getty Images covering the event and below are a selection of some of the pictures from the visit edited into black and white. Colour versions are available on the Getty Images website… HERE
